  • Day One

    Lancashire captain Luis Reece won the toss and asked the visitors Warwickshire to have a bat at Emirates Old Trafford.

    Warwickshire ended the day well and closed on 275/5 from 70 overs with Laurie Evans top scoring on 103 before he was the victim of a Tom Smith wicket.

    Smith, returning from a long-term injury, bowled four overs.

    Arron Lilley struck twice, while Nathan Buck and Tom Bailey also shared a wicket before close.

    Lancashire will be hoping to get through Warwickshire’s tail quite quickly when they restart play on Day Two.

  • Day Two

    The hosts will start Day Three on 81-0 in response to Warwickshire's 381-9 dec.

    Openers Karl Brown and Haseeb Hameed are both unbeaten as the Red Rose will look to bat for as long as they can in response to the Bears' total.

    However, Lancashire lost a huge part of the day to the weather with rain and hailstone bring a halt to proceedings midway through the afternoon.

    Spinner Arron Lilley picked up three wickets, while Nathan Buck and Tom Bailey each got two wickets. Tom Smith and Saqib Mahmood got a victim apiece.

  • Day Three

    After battling the elements for three days – rain, sleet, snow and a bitterly cold wind, plus a very strong Warwickshire second XI, the championship game at Emirates Old Trafford ended in a tense draw, with the home county sharing eighteen points in front of a sparse crowd.

    Three declarations, two from the visitors, set Lancashire to score 341 in 84 overs for victory. The weather soon put an end to all thoughts of chasing down that total and Warwickshire’s bowlers chipped away at the batsmen, taking wickets regularly.

    Tom Smith held firm for over three and a half hours in making an unbeaten 69 and his seventh wicket partnership of 97 with Arron Lilley, who contributed 41 not out, was largely instrumental in frustrating Warwickshire.
